Testimonials & Featured Clients

“I have trained with many voice teachers in both Los Angeles and New York City and I can honestly say David Anthony is one in a million! As a vocal coach David is committed to not only your vocal progression but your overall success and you are Undoubtably getting more than your paying for. David is excellent in providing technical training but you also get a teacher who can really help you develop as an overall performer. He has a keen ability to isolate your weaknesses and help correct them while reenforcing your strengths and helping you capitalize on them. With David as my coach I was able to get into OCHSA( a competitive performing arts high school) and The Young Americans ( international performing group). Thanks to David, who also coached me for my college auditions, I am now a senior at New York University Tisch Drama. Thank you david for transforming me into the performer I never thought I could be.”

Mikaila McMaster, Musical Theatre Actress

I first met David Anthony when I was eleven years old through McCoy Rigby Musical Theatre Conservatory where he was music directing multiple shows during their summer stock season. I then went on to continue taking classes from David through the McCoy Rigby Conservatory and through MTU - Musical Theatre University. Shortly there after, I started to take private voice lessons with him. I have been training with David for almost 10 years now and he has had a huge impact on my life. He has acted as my teacher and mentor and he has inspired me to do things I did not think were possible. Because of David my vocal control and technique have grown leaps and bounds ...

Tatiana Alvarez, Professional Musical Theatre Artist

I met David when my daughter was blessed to have him as the instructor of her school’s musical theater voice conservatory class. She came home after a few weeks of being under David’s instruction and begged, “Can I pleeeaaassse get David as a private voice teacher?” She said through all her years of musical theater voice training, she had never been challenged and encouraged in her vocal skills like she had by David. We were able to arrange private voice lessons with David, and in a matter of months, she went from struggling to control her singing gift to winning multiple and exclusive vocal competitions, along with being cast in lead roles. David not only taught her how to properly use her voice but helped her to expertly craft songs, bringing out the intent of each and every lyric...

Stephanie Schwartz, Mother of 2 Musical Theatre Performers

David is my son’s vocal coach. We first met David in a show that he was the musical director for and was so impressed with his musical talent and ability to teach that we begged him to instruct my son. We have been with David for over a year and have seen amazing improvement and technique in my son’s vocal abilities. More than teaching the technical part of voice and singing, David has instilled in my son a confidence that is unmatched. My son will go to Broadway one day because of David’s impression on his life and for that I will be eternally grateful. David is our best-kept secret. I selfishly want to keep him to myself and not let the world know of his greatness, but here I am recommending him on Linked In because it’s the right thing to do. I see great feats in David’s future and one day I expect to see him with Tony in hand for music and lyric composition of some great Broadway musical, (that inevitably my son will perform in). All joking aside, I truly believe this is where David is heading….Broadway greatness. And, I being one of his biggest fans will be cheering him on all the way.
